At HomeCareDirect we’re passionate about the personalisation of care and are dedicated to making self-directed support the norm rather than the exception.
Whether you’re receiving a Personal Budget, Direct Payment, Personal Health Budget or using your own funds, we believe that you should be at the centre of every decision made about your support.
This means choosing and managing your own personal assistants and organising your rotas so you know who is coming into your home and when. It also means supporting you to follow your interests, achieve your goals and realise your ambitions in life.
Together is Better!
Through our charity, Together is Better, we’ll direct you towards partners, charities and voluntary groups that may be of interest to you.
For some people this means going horse riding, fishing, cooking, to football, swimming, gardening and even meeting Daleks at Doctor Who conventions! The main thing is that it’s all about your choices and remembering that we’re all unique, and should be treated as such.
Our friendly team and your dedicated independent living advisor will use their experience to help you along your journey.
We’ll help you find your perfect personal assistants who may be people you already know, by advertising or via our national database of 400+ personal assistants. We’ll then employ the personal assistants on your behalf – so you don’t have to worry about being an employer.
We’ll also ensure your personal assistants are trained specifically to work with you, making sure everything is managed well and fully insured. Furthermore, we’ll set up an individually managed bank account to receive your funding – providing all necessary financial returns to the local authority/NHS.
A one stop shop for self-directed support
We like to think of our service as a one stop shop for people looking to take control over their care at home and direct their own support, enabling you to focus on living your life, in the way you want.
HomeCareDirect are a national service working with older people, children, people with learning disabilities, people with mental health issues and people with physical disabilities and/or sensory impairments.
Our website is full of information about how you can direct your own support and live independently, so please have a browse and feel free to phone us with questions.
